Iíve just rented a slip in a covered dock at a marina on a Corps lake. By next week, I should have a 4,500 lb lift for a boat with a dry weight specified at 3,900 lbs (thereís time to stop this transaction if the lift sounds too light). The docks all have chain link fencing and locked gates for security (which should work just fine against pedestrians without access). I donít know if the slip comes with a locker or not but, presumptively, a locker would be allowed.
Whatís this going to be like?
1 - What are good security measures for the boat and accessories? My tower speakers arenít very fancy but my mirror is. Also, the boat has electronic start (ie., you merely enter in the pass code).
2 - How do I help the boat to dry after I leave it covered?
3 - Is a little hand cart worthwhile for moving things between car and boat?
4 - What else? Any surprises ahead for someone who has no idea what this will be like?
